Will you please return it to me (at Three Gables ...) when you have finished with it. I don't know whether you care for information about one's work but in case you do I may mention that I hope to bring out a new volume of poems in this year, & probably two books for children - one of them to include the children's stories which appeared last year in the Pall Mall Magazine, and which have brought me much praise. I am also doing a series for fairy tales ...", 2 sides 4to., The Manor House, Rottingdean, 10th January
